After a long wait, we finally got our Alter G installed. this morning we treated our first patient on the device. She is a 25 year old runner who has a race coming up, but her ITB syndrome is preventing her from running.
By reducing her weight by 50% and having her run up a 4% grade, we were able to see her run PAIN FREE!
She ran for 30 minutes smiling the whole time, grinning from ear to ear actually. When we asked her how she felt, she said “THIS IS GREAT!!! (her emphasis).
If you would like to try the Alter G you can find a card for a free trial on our website.
My son who is a college runner ran on it yesterday just after we installed and learned how to operate the device. He said that it helped him improve his form and that it felt like he could “run 100 miles without hurting” his joints.
This is amazing technology. You can see a good image of it here.
